5 Cruel Movie Moments That Were Adorable Behind The Scenes
All of Hollywood\'s most violent, scary, and shocking moments were still created by people. People who make little inside jokes, who goof off at work, and who occasionally screw around with puppets (depending on the accessibility of puppets in the workplace). That\'s why some of the most serious moments in film and television history have shockingly cute behind-the-scenes stories. For instance ...
Game Of Thrones has been a grim death march of murdered pets, murdered parents, murdered siblings, murdered idealism, brutal torture, and horrible rape. Fortunately, the stories behind the scenes read less like the Marquis de Sade and more like Randy Newman lyrics. When one of the direwolves found itself out of a job, actress Sophie Turner\'s mom convinced HBO to let them adopt her. And so, just like in your fanfiction,
Sansa and Lady are living happily together forever.
Meanwhile, when the cast members aren\'t killing and raping each other on-screen, they\'re enjoying more production vacation time than Adam Sandler.
We\'re going to naturally assume that Oberyn\'s not wearing a suit.
Seriously, they look like they have the best time together ...
It gets harder and harder to take all of these people seriously as they\'re butchering and knife-raping each other after you see that their off-screen lives are basically a \'60s beach comedy.
Despite Varys clearly belonging to a Bond movie.
The Empire Strikes Back wasn\'t exactly a breeze to film, especially the scenes on Dagobah. It took up to four hours to shoot two lines of dialogue in the hot, humid muck. Sometimes, they would even have to wear masks to stave off the nausea caused by the foggy, gassy confines of Yoda\'s backyard. Plus, getting the Yoda puppet to work properly was a technical nightmare.
With frustrations running high, Yoda operator Frank Oz decided that a surprise was in order. Hamill had just delivered the line "I followed my feelings," when Miss Piggy popped up next to him from out of nowhere and declared "Feelings? Ya wanna know about feelings? Get behind this couch and I\'ll show ya feelings, ya little runt."
Oz happened to also be the puppeteer responsible for numerous Muppets and
Sesame Street characters, and he decided to have a few of his co-workers visit him on set. While it was rather scandalous to have Miss Piggy shamelessly flirt with Luke Skywalker right in front of her green beau, Hamill got over the awkwardness and sang a duet of "Feelings" with Miss Piggy. Sadly, their musical number wasn\'t filmed -- after all, it was simply a semi-spontaneous moment to perk up the folks on set. Though we do have some photos ...
It\'s cool that Yoda got to work with his human cousin.
And every picture from the visit looks like one of your weird childhood fever dreams come true. Look at Yoda with his thousand-yard stare, trying to tolerate those uppity young puppets. They\'re like his hyperactive grandkids,
Martin Scorsese doesn\'t really make movies you can enjoy with your mom. But hidden beneath his piles of drugs, profanity, and corpses is a family portrait featuring a sweet old lady who\'s always willing to help her son out with his little projects. We\'ve told you before about how Martin\'s mom, Catherine Scorsese, held her own alongside Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, and Joe Pesci in an improvised scene in
Goodfellas. But we shouldn\'t be surprised that she aced it, because that was far from the first time she\'d played a violent gangster\'s sweet old ma.
In 1964, Martin was a film student working on his second short, It\'s Not Just You, Murray!, which was about -- shocker -- a gangster. Catherine played the doting mother in her son\'s grim wittle film, and that was only the start of a filmography that would make some actors jealous.
Catherine made cameos in most of her son\'s movies until her death in 1997. She was a mom in his feature debut,
Who\'s That Knocking At My Door, she was a mom in The King Of Comedy, and she branched out to more diverse roles like "Woman on Landing" and "Fruitstand Customer" in Mean Streets and Cape Fear. She helped Martin long past the time his zero-budget student days made it necessary.
So Scorsese\'s movies may have more violence and foul language than the average war, but he still loved his mom so much that he brought her to the office with him. Hell, after Mean Streets put him on the map as a brilliant up-and-coming director, Scorsese used his newfound critical acclaim and commercial success to make his dream project ... a loving documentary about Catherine and her husband Charles (himself a veteran of eight Scorsese movies).
Casino, the end of 31 years of helping her son out with his movies, which best sums up her relationship with Martin. She plays a mom again, and she chides her fictional son for cursing so much. Does that sound like it was based on a true story? Call up your mom and ask her what she thinks.
